    Serena Williams has Wimbledon on her mind.

    Last year's Wimbledon champion is on the sidelines this year because she is expecting her first child with fiance and Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian.

    But, the expectant mother is still on the court. Williams took to Instagram to share a practice video -- a workout consisting of backhand drills -- with the caption: "Wimbledon got me like: Easy standing drills this morning. Go easy."

    She also posted a photo of herself on the court holding her baby bump in one hand and a racket in the other. 

    Williams accidentally announced her pregnancy on Snapchat in April. Since then, the mom-to-be has documented her baby bump on social media, and she bared it for Vanity Fair as she and her bump grace the cover of the August 2017 issue. 

    Williams says she plans to return to the court after giving birth.

    "My baby is going to be in the stands, hopefully cheering for me and not crying too much," she said.
